In August, I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts! Consequently, I “feel” like a Jedi Master of Music or something, especially because I currently have students.
I feel like I have a thousand more ideas now too, but first I have to” work.” I have a freebie children’s piece that I’m doing for a friend, and I have some transcribing and editing work that is paid! I’m trying to write an orchestral piece (originally, I wanted a symphony) for a contest next month. I’m also busy with my students, my “little padawans” as I now sometimes refer to them, with festivals, holidays, and recitals coming up.
This time around graduating, I’m thankful that I haven’t gotten much post-graduation depression, as I have in the past. I’ve still had many ups and downs, but thanks to my many friends (mostly musical) and family, I have a lot more hope for my future of making it in the world. I feel more prepared, but I have also learned that I’ll never feel perfectly prepared for anything worth that is trying. So, I have to just remember my support system and take leaps of faith. Not too hard, right?
